Scarlett Johansson is staying busy! With the film “Lucy” right around the corner and a baby on the way, it would seem like her plate was full but not quite. According to Variety, she is currently in talks for a role in the Coen Brothers’ film “Hail Caesar!”
The film is set in the 1950s and is about a Hollywood fixer set to keep the studio’s stars in line. Scarlett Johansson would play an actress who becomes pregnant just as she’s about to start working on a new film. It is a fitting role given her current state and they would most likely work her real life pregnancy into the film.
If she is cast in the part, she could join a variety of other A-List actors. Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, and Ralph Fienes are currently in negotiations to co-star in the film. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are also in talks to have a role.
There is no set release date for “Hail Caesar!” as they are currently in pre-production, but with the cast they are pursuing I’m sure that it will be an interesting film.
